Zsa Zsa Gabor To Have Leg Amputated…
Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor was admitted to hospital in Los Angeles on Sunday to undergo a partial amputation of her right leg, her husband told Reuters.
Gabor, believed to be 93 and in ill health since July when she broke her hip, has been infected by a lesion that turned gangrenous, her husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt said.
After doctors warned she would die unless her leg was amputated above the knee, Gabor was “screaming and yelling” about wanting to spend New Year’s Eve at home for her traditional celebration of champagne and caviar, he said.
She was finally admitted to UCLA Medical Center and was being prepared on Sunday evening for surgery, he said.
